How to build an End Portal in Minecraft Pocket Edition

End Portals in Minecraft are one of the endgame goals withing the adventure title. The End Dragon is the true boss of the game, residing deep in the Nether guarded by a horde of Endermen. The fright of taking on a massive vomit-spewing dragon is pretty real, and a lot of players like the challenge. And when it comes to the various versions of the legendary adventure game, Minecraft fans might have questions about how to access this final obstacle. One of the editions of the game that seemingly has people confused in Pocket edition. So to clear up any problems, here’s a guide on how to build an End Portal in Minecraft Pocket Edition.

It’s worth noting that End Portals can only be physically built in Creative Mode. To find one organically, you will need to do a fair bit of exploration and find an intact Ender Portal. These spawn randomly in the overworld inside dungeon Strongholds, but only when the game is set to Survival mode.

To build the frame, you will need to collect 12 End Portal Frames and 12 Eyes of Ender first. The Frames and Eyes can be found in the Creative menu on the pocket version. The building mechanics of the Pocket Edition of Minecraft are a bit weird. When placing the End Portal Frames, you want them in a square shape with the corners empty. So you will have 3 End Portal Frames on each side with nothing on the corners. Place the Eyes of Ender in each of the frames, making sure to be standing on the frame when you place the last one. If you’re standing inside the frames when you place the last Eye, the portal will not turn on. The block location lights up when placing a new block, so be on the lookout for that as well.
